There's one at the local stealership. I like it a lot.

That would be my style. Had a 79 Golden Eagle for many years. Wish I still did.

That's what happens when a TJ finally grows up.

Of course you never know, he my have a TJ at home like I do. I am going to have to drive it some today or it might start to feel neglected.

Grows up:
Gets fatter?
Gets a job and never has time for fun?
Less agile?
Starts getting into the technology age?



I have both as well.

Nice Jeep. First time seeing one with this color combo.

IMO it would look great with some of those old fashion Cragar Nomads in white!

I thought about getting some of the vintage steelies and painting them white. Of course I would then have to find some decent Jeep little Jeep wheel covers. Unfortunately the vintage steelies only come in 15" and 16" and springing for another set of tire is not something I want to do.

I like these, especially in that colour.

The only thing that grates a bit are the bumpers, but I am sure you will sort that out given some time.

Check out post #40 in this thread. I like the bumpers, but for $650 in primed metal, I'll keep looking.

That's a nicely modded Chief.

I like it when specials get some updates but retain their identity.

Really like this! Almost bought the Rhino Chief here - really really close - but went for the Big Bear (Rhino) instead.

Great looking Jeep!!! Congrats!

They were available in three colors - Chief (blue), Gobi and Rhino. I think the Chief was the most popular. My dealer got two - Chief and Gobi. I was undecided until right before it came time to do the paperwork.
